unvamped by Elizabeth Stevens

Sponsored post: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to author Elizabeth Stevens.
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Would you accept yourself to find your humanity?

Ellie Cooper comes from a long line of witches but wishes she could be normal. When she nearly kills herself cursing a vampire, her dislike of her heritage deepens. She must find a way to accept her magic or forsake her family.

After feeding on a witch, 693-year-old vampire Charles Dumphrey wakes to find he is living a human teenage life, complete with parents, school and girls. He must adjust to his new life as a human and find a way to break the curse Ellie put on him.

Lee is a werewolf who is not yet shifting regularly. He worries about who he will be when he regulates. Lee searches for the balance between his humanity and the wolf before the wolf takes over.

All three have to overcome their uncertainties and accept themselves in order to save Ellie’s life.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book was a YA fantasy story about a witch, a vampire, and a werewolf.

Charles, Ellie, and Lee were all okay characters, but I didn’t really love any of them, and found the book quite hard to get into.

The storyline in this was about Charles attacking Ellie, and Ellie cursing him. Charles then had to adapt to being a human rather than a vampire, and I was quite shocked at how much Ellie’s parents helped him considering that he tried to kill their daughter!
I did have some issues with this book though, I found it hard to get in to, I found it a bit weird that conversations were repeated from different points of view, and I just generally wondered where the story was going. It was also a little confusing the way that Ellie was often referred to as ‘Pet’ interchangeably.

The ending to this didn’t really tie much up for me, and I just wondered (highlight to view spoiler - is Charles going to just stay human forever now? )

6 out of 10
